Greek Council is the governing board for all greek lettered organizations on campus at Oakland University. The council is responsible for planning Greek Week each winter and uniting all the greek lettered organizations on campus. Greek council is made up of an executive board, committee chairs, and representatives from each Greek lettered organization.

As a whole, Greek Life also known as sororities and fraternities function as a group of leaders trying to better themselves and their college community. Each organization differs in many ways from their rituals and secrets they each hold to the ideals they value and seek in membership. Membership in a greek lettered organization can begin at any time during your undergraduate degree but membership in these organizations lasts a lifetime. Greek organizations typically have their own philanthropy, sisterhood or brotherhood activities, and conduct mixers with other organizations. Greek life can be an excellent source to gain leadership through various chairperson, committee member, or executive board positions that are offered within each individual organization and in each council. It also offers many opportunities to get involved with volunteer organizations to gain service hours, academic support, and a close-knit community.

Greek Council meets every other Sunday at 2 p.m.
